    Hello,

    Which application is suitable for some basic video-editing (mpg/mp4) for movies made with my mobile phone?

    Thanks!

    AviDemux2 is probably the best one, however I don't know if it will support your mobile phone codec. Supported Codecs

    Sigh.

    yum install brain :roll:

    A lightweight netbook like the AOne is NOT designed as a video editing machine.
    Get a Mac with a big hd and plenty of RAM and plug yer video source into that - iMovie will handle such jobs with ease.

    Course, if you can tough it out (might be worth it to avoid shelling out so much money), the AAO will still do video-editing (just not as fast, and you will certainly need some kind of external HD if you want to work with LARGE files).

    Aside from the programs mentioned above, see if you can install kmediagrab. It's a handy, reasonably user-friendly tool that can convert many [weird] video formats to more mainstream ones. Once converted, then you can use one of the aforementioned programs to edit it (might also add kdenlive since it reminds me a bit of iMovie).

    For low res video cell phone video, the Atom should be fine. It's not like it's 1080p full-length movie video-sheesh (v. 2.0) If you can convert it to more standard format, Avidemux is a fine basic editor and transcoder. The windows version even runs fine in Wine.
